About the Company


Fordewind Cargo Group, LLC is a young, fast-growing company founded in Saint Petersburg in early 2012 by experts with more than 10 years of experience in container shipping.

Our main business line is the transportation of containerized and foreign trade cargo, with transhipment in the Sea Port of Saint Petersburg using a combination of transportation methods: sea, road, and railroad.

The name ‘Fordewind’ comes from the Dutch ‘voor de wind’, meaning the positioning of the ship with the wind directly behind the stern. In other words, this is the favourable wind for those on a long voyage. We sincerely believe that this favourable wind helps us to fulfil the various transport and logistics tasks given to us by clients entrusting their cargo to our company.

Our main goal at Fordewind Cargo is to provide complete support in the development and selection of an optimal supply chain for our clients, and to organize all aspects of cargo delivery. We do our utmost to ensure our clients’ cargoes arrive in the right place at the right time, and that the cost of delivery is reasonable and competitive.

The team at Fordewind Cargo consists of professionals with specialized higher education and extensive experience in the field of forwarding services.


Multimodal transportation

Fordewind Cargo has strong partnerships with numerous transportation and logistics companies: leading global container lines; large terminal operators in Saint Petersburg, Moscow, and other Russian cities; as well as many road and railway operators. These partnerships allow Fordewind Cargo to complete tasks quickly and with the least cost, with savings that can be passed on to reduce the transportation and logistics costs of our clients.
